All-Star forward Paul George has signed a maximum contract extension with the Los Angeles Clippers that’ll guarantee him as much as $226 million over the next five years, his agent Aaron Mintz of @CAA_Basketball tells ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) December 10, 2020
George, who was traded to the Clippers in the summer of 2019, averaged 21.5 points and 5.7 rebounds per game last season. Kawhi Leonard, George’s running mate in Los Angeles, is under contract through the 2021-22 season. The final year of Leonard’s contract features a player option.
In the last three seasons, since his departure from the Pacers, George has secured two All-Star Game nods. The former Fresno State standout enters the 2020-21 season at 30 years old.
